The line outside the Steven Alan sale sounds like nothing compared to the one for the Gucci watch sale taking place today and tomorrow at Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. A tipster writes: "I attempted to go to the Gucci watch sale (at the Metropolitan Pavilion) this morning. When I arrived at 9:00am the line stretched almost all the way to Sixth Ave. I had to be at work so was unable to wait in the slow-moving line. I would guess the people at the front had been there for at least an hour-and-a-half. Lot’s of people leaving with big bags though!" [Racked Inbox]
